Stubborn Little Nickel - By Dan'l MclLhenny

Remember that stubborn little nickel 

That rolled under the bed 

It may as well be lost 

Or stuck inside the mattress 

Long gone from memory 

How would you have used it 

If you knew just where it was 

To buy some penny stocks 

Or pay tax on argyle socks 

C’mon it’s just five cents 

Missing from a child’s hand 

Who tossed it in a pool 

Then dove down to retrieve  

That very gift you gave one day 

It surfaced with a smile 

Worth a million more 

Instead the stubborn little nickel  

Rests beside a dust bunny  

Known as Filthy Fred
